Israelis Very Proud Of Defeating Federer In Olympic Doubles

Politicians are turning into sports fans like everyone else at the Olympic Games and Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, a known tennis follower, was fulsome in his praise for the doubles pair of Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich who ousted defending gold medalists Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland from the Men’s Doubles.

Lieberman wrote on his Facebook page, “As a tennis fan I salute tonight Israeli tennis players Israeli Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich, who made a huge achievement for Israeli sports and for them personally, when they beat the champions from the last Olympic Games led by Roger Federer."

 

Murray Is Watching Olympic Events And Wants His Own Medal

The last time the male version of the Rogers Cup was played in Toronto two years ago, Andy Murray took the title with impressive back to back victories over Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. However after the rigors of the Olympic Games, the Scot is not setting his sights too high this year after a rapid trans-Atlantic switch of surface and continent.

 

Haas Still Steaming About Not Being Nominated for Olympics

Germany's Olympic tennis exile Tommy Haas still cannot believe that he is not competing at the London Games. But the 34-year-old longtime national stalwart is burying his disappointment by playing this week in the ATP event in Washington, a decade and a half after first competing at the venue in the US capital.

 

 

Raonic Proving He Can Play With The Top Players

The big-match pressure is starting to build on Canadian Milos Raonic after the potential top 10 candidate failed to measure up at another of the major events in tennis. The No. 23 put up a huge fight in a record-breaking 6-3, 3-6, 25-23 London Olympic second-round defeat by French fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the London Olympics.
